OVERVIEW

The MIDI hub for now and into the future.

The interaction of multiple devices and multiple programs and applications on multiple platforms has necessitated a better architecture for MIDI information hubs, and iConnectivity has positioned themselves as a design and manufacturing team that is meeting those challenges with innovation, imagination and efficiency. With the iConnectivity iConnectMIDI+ Lightning Edition, you can use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with your Mac/PC like a plugin or controller, and that's just the beginning.

Not only does iConnectMIDI4+support three computer devices simultaneously - Macs, PCs, and iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch) - its Audio passThru technology routes audio between them digitally with zero signal degradation, simply appearing as an audio interface to the operating systems.

This combination of audio and MIDI connections has countless applications. A synth running on your iPad could behave as if it were a touch-controlled plug-in running inside your host DAW, or you could process a software instrument in your DAW through an effects processing app like an amp simulator on your iPhone. If you are feeling adventurous you can even use your Mac or PC as a slave to your iOS device. The iConnectMIDI4+ offers seamless integration in all directions.

Many MIDI devices include a USB port for input/output of MIDI. iConnectMIDI4+ accommodates for this by addition of a USB host port that allows musicians to integrate their USB MIDI devices seamlessly. iConnectMIDI4+'s MIDI host port supports up to 8 USB MIDI synths, controllers, etc. enabling all computing devices that are connected to iConnectMIDI4+ to send and receive MIDI from devices that are connected to its USB host port.

iConnectMIDI4+ also has an ethernet port. Users can connect iConnectMIDI4+ to wireless router, ethernet hub/router, or any ethernet enabled device via its dedicated ethernet port and is network discoverable, allowing for musicians to control any of the devices connected to iConnectMIDI4+ via network connection, adding further control and connectivity options.

With all of this connectivity comes possibility and nearly endless options. iConnectivity's iConfig software for iOS, MAC and PC allows the user complete control over iConnectMIDI4+'s I/O by providing direct control over how MIDI is routed and filtered to and from all devices connected to it.

With all of its new technology and innovation iConnectMIDI4+ sets a new benchmark in MIDI connectivity and iOS integration, delivering so much more than just a standard 4x4 or 8x8 MIDI interface even though it is at a similar price point. It introduces new concepts designed to make life easier and opens new doors of creativity by enabling music makers new and exciting types of workflow. All of this and more makes iConnectMIDI4+ an essential tool for today & tomorrow's music makers.

Comments about iConnectivity iConnectMIDI4+ Lightning Edition:

This is an amazing unit but with that comes a very high level of complexity. It takes a bit of relearning and seeing things like Iconnectivity wants you to. I had a simple MIDI interface previously (still have it but it isn't functioning properly.) I bought this as a replacement for that unit. It wasn't as easy as plugging it in like the old one. Iconnectivity says "you didn't buy it for that" and I agree. I have a large setup with many 5 PIN DIN synths so I needed lots of 5 PINs. This unit has that. USB MIDI, this has it. I have yet to touch the Network MIDI and I am working on the audio side of this unit now. I look forward to incorporating the iPads, etc. but haven't had time to since I have had to figure out the MIDI routing to work properly with my DAW.
